In an iron-cast pot melt 1 Tablespoon of butter. (if you don’t have an iron-cast pot, just a regular one will work too).
Add chicken pieces to the butter with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. On medium-high heat sear chicken pieces, just until the outside of the chicken is browned up.
Take out the chicken and add in along with the potato to the pot and sear just until it starts beginning to golden.
Transfer chicken back to the pot with potatoes.
Add in chopped onion and sear for 2 minutes, stirring often.
Add in grated carrot, and stir in a tablespoon of tomato paste.
Fill pot with water, just enough to cover the potato and chicken.
Put on lowest heat, salt, and pepper to taste the water and close with a tight lid.
Slow cook for an hour.
Better to serve right away, enjoy!
